We enjoy these flavorful grilled apples with a lightly spiced coating all year. Best of all, they’re a cinch to grill or broil and cleanup’s a breeze. –Doris Sowers of Hutchinson, Kansas

"My grandchildren loved to help and this was one they could do and take to the Chef outside. The taste was excellent would make them again for something fast. I have tried them on the inside grill too. Takes less time because of the top and bottom."

"Very very good. I used sweet & low instead of sugar, and it was fantastic. My kids loved it too, which is a definite plus. I soaked my (wooden) skewers for about thirty minutes prior to grilling to make sure they didn't smoke too much or catch fire. I will absolutely be making this again!!!"
